Coventry 0-1 Swansea City

Swansea City have won their first League game of the season thanks to Ashley Williams' second half strike and his second goal this term to give us a much needed 3 points.

Paulo Sousa's side continued to show an improvement in their performance after a promising display in midweek at home to Reading. Williams netted his second goal of the campaign on the rebound as Dyer's shot came back off the woodwork.

The Swansea boss made just one change to his side, Kerry Morgan was unfairly dropped to the bench as Chad Bond made his full League debut in midfield.

The visitors made a promising start to the game and were the better side in a good opening spell but we were unfortunate to concede a penalty kick after 14 minutes when Andrea Orlandi handled the ball in the area. Clingan fired the spot kick low and wide of the post as De Vries dived the right way.

The Spanish midfielder has a great chance to put us in front before the break after a well worked free kick from Sousa's side. Gower provided Orlandi with a chance but his effort was aimed straight at goalkeeper Kieren Westwood.

Ashley Williams got the all-important winning goal after 24 minutes into the second half. Dyer's attempt hit the bar but the ball fell to Williams who fired the ball hom from 12 yards.

The lead looked pretty safe at this point as Dorus De Vries wasn't forced into many difficult saves but Coleman's side did create a few chances before the final whistle.

The three valuable points gives the Swans a much needed confidence boost after an indifferent start to the campaign. We have two home games next week, Scunthorpe visit the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday night in the Carling Cup second round before we host Watford on Saturday.
